I know that he said it was the roof, and it could have been that the hounds needed more room in the garage, and it has even been rumored that he needed another seat to carry around his Irish Car Bomb's teenagers and their Hello Kitty stickers, but IMHO Tom and Ray have hit on the real reason.

Should Steve Keep His "Chick Car"? | Car Talk

Catch this exchange at the bottom of the page . . .

TOM: Not only should you not worry about this, Steve, but you probably are one of the few who, like me, have discovered a wonderful secret: Who likes chick cars? Chicks!

RAY: That's true. And conversely, last week, when I was test-driving the little Fiat 500, it was like taking a puppy for a walk on a crowded beach! Women everywhere were turning their heads to look and smile.

And now we know "The Rest Of The Story" :biglaugh:


And yes, there is no mention of the SLK as a "Chick car" in the story :rb

So if I drive a chick car does that mean the other women are looking because they're jealous or because they go both ways?

I know what women would say... I wanna hear from the guys

This is precious!

RAY: That's true. Most women tend to be intimidated or put off by so-called macho cars. And they tend to be more attracted to cars they consider cute. So if you're interested in talking to women, a cute car -- like the del Sol -- is exactly what you should be driving, Steve.

TOM: On the other hand, if you're more interested in attracting guys to your car, then you should drive a "guy car." I know when I test-drive something macho, like an oversize truck or a Dodge Challenger with a Hemi V8, 99.9 percent of the stares I get are from guys!

Obviously this is a hypothetical question, because we have already established on this forum (Referenced threads ad nauseum) that the SLK is NOT a Chick Car.

So, if you are asking that should you drive, say, a Fiat 500 or a Honda Del Sol, and other women are looking at you, then I must say . . .

They're jealous.

Yes definitely jealous.

:biglaugh:

And us guys have no problem with that. It's when other guys tell us that WE are driving a Chick Car that we get all bent out of shape.


I'm sure that you are not unacquainted with men and our insecurities. :biglaugh:

Can't be that insecure ! At least you aren't driving a VW beetle with eyelashes over the headlights
